Conservation Volunteers, who have been regenerating Prospect Creek in Smithfield for years, removing rubbish, invasive weeds and planting native flowering trees, are hosting a twilight showcase on August 23.

Possums at Prospect will be held on Thursday, August 23 behind Long Street Park with residents able to hear how volunteers have breathed new life into the local urban creek. 

The rewilding has included removing invasive plant species and repairing a vital waterway, that flows onto Botany Bay. As part of the project, 60 habitat boxes were installed for native wildlife. 

It is hoped the work along the creek will improve the quality of water heading out to the oceans, while providing food and shelter for native animals moving about western Sydney. 

The event starts at 5.30pm and concludes at 6.15pm.
